Chuck Peña PEZ sez: My PEZ compadre Leslie Reissner beforehand wrote an awesome assessment of the Rouvy app. That is my follow-up based mostly on my driving Rouvy.

I ought to point out that Leslie is a complete GOD in the case of indoor driving (Ottawa’s chilly/moist climate and shite roads conspire to pressure him indoors for six months of the yr). I do my justifiable share of indoor driving over the winter (perhaps three months) however am a rank novice by comparability.

Rouvy 2024
I’m a Rouvy Rookie

Everybody (who hasn’t been dwelling below a rock) is aware of Zwift, which is clearly the large child on the block in the case of indoor driving. Nevertheless it’s not the one sport on the town. Rouvy provides a compelling various IMHO. I really like the augmented actuality (AR) of Rouvy, which mixes actual world driving footage with an on-screen avatar of you driving (like on Zwift). One strategy to describe it’s driving on Google Maps in avenue view. This “actuality” of ROUVY makes it extra participating IMHO. Totally different strokes for various people, so YMMV.

I’m additionally a fan of driving with Will, Peter, and Emma. As Leslie mentioned: “Imaginary Will, Peter and Emma who, not like my associates, don’t drop me once I cease however simply wait a bit up the street. Then again, they do typically dash unexpectedly to beat you on the end line after sitting in your draft for ages. Very similar to my associates.” Though Will, Peter, and Emma by no means drop you and depart you for lifeless on the aspect of the street. They’re extra like loyal domestiques and it’s like having your personal non-public group trip.

Rouvy 2024
Me, Emma, Will, and Peter

What can typically be somewhat overwhelming with ROUVY is the sheer variety of route (we’re speaking effectively over a thousand) and exercise selections for driving (plus challenges and occasion rides). I typically spend 10-Quarter-hour scrolling by way of routes and exercises to seek out one I need to trip.

Rouvy 2024

Rouvy 2024
That is simply the tip of the iceberg

One of many issues I love to do on ROUVY is decide a metropolis to do a short-ish route (it’s enjoyable driving in locations I’ve visited and am conversant in, e.g., London, Paris, Rome, but in addition locations I’ve by no means been, e.g., Prague, Vienna, Budapest). On the finish of the route, ROUVY has the choice of constant to trip and can transport you to a different metropolis of its personal selecting for my subsequent trip.

Rouvy 2024
The world is my oyster driving on ROUVY

One other cool factor about ROUVY is with the ability to trip La Vuelta routes aka the Spanish Hillclimb Championships. For me, the Tour is the grandest of the grand excursions and the Giro is essentially the most lovely, however the Vuelta is essentially the most enjoyable.

Rouvy 2024


Are you able to say Angliru?

It must be famous that with so many routes to select from (all of ROUVY’s routes can be found to trip 24/7; whereas Zwift has Watopia and two different “visitor” worlds open for driving on any given day), you’re not prone to have a number of driving firm (apart from imaginary Will, Peter, and Emma) on ROUVY (in comparison with 1000’s of your closest digital associates you’ve by no means met whenever you’re within the pixels). Personally, I discover it somewhat “calmer” and fewer distracting, which permits me to deal with my trip and benefit from the surroundings. YYMV.

This side of ROUVY is without doubt one of the the explanation why  the US veterans and first responders charity Venture Hero has been utilizing ROUVY as a rehabilitation instrument since COVID. Many veterans affected by PTSD and harm benefited from the calmer coaching setting with out the distraction of gamified parts, excessive depth graphics, and messaging.

ROUVY’s most up-to-date partnership is with Lidl-Trek, which incorporates:

  • New TREK Madone Bike: The long-lasting TREK Madone bike is obtainable for all ROUVY customers to trip on the platform. As of February, it is going to develop into a digital storage merchandise attainable by way of in-game cash. Moreover, different TREK bike fashions are anticipated to be launched throughout this era.
  • Digital Lidl-Trek Jersey: Customers can proudly don the unique Digital Lidl-Trek jersey throughout races, showcasing their assist for the famend biking staff.
  • Coaching Plan by Lidl-Trek: A complete coaching plan designed by Lidl-Trek’s efficiency consultants shall be made accessible on ROUVY, permitting customers to coach like the professionals and enhance their efficiency.

Rouvy 2024

  • Leaderboards: Comply with within the tire tracks of Lidl-Trek riders and examine your instances on the routes they’ve conquered. You would possibly even stumble upon them on the street.
  • Occasions with Lidl-Trek Athletes: Hold a watch out for particular occasions that includes Lidl-Trek athletes. Whereas particular dates and athlete names are but to be confirmed, customers can anticipate participating with their biking idols in numerous thrilling occasions.

I nonetheless trip (and have enjoyable driving) Zwift (normally group rides I set up on weekends), however discover myself making ROUVY my go-to indoor driving platform on weekdays. Whether or not it’s simply driving or a exercise, I really like touring the world on ROUVY with the visuals of driving on “actual” roads. In order for you a change of tempo/surroundings from Zwift, I’ll second what Leslie needed to say about ROUVY: “For these searching for an indoor biking expertise that gives visible realism, an enormous selection of routes, and fulfilling challenges, in addition to the possibility to scout out roads you actually need to trip In Actual Life, Rouvy may be extremely really helpful.”

Together with stretching, therapeutic massage is a part of my morning routine. And a part of post-ride restoration. Each day therapeutic massage makes a BIG distinction! Not that my muscle mass don’t get sore (particularly after an extended, arduous trip), however they undoubtedly really feel extra “supple” and “free.” To make certain, it’s not the identical factor as a top quality therapeutic massage from an skilled sports activities therapeutic massage therapist, but it surely’s the following smartest thing and a complete lot cheaper.

Bob and Brad 2024
When you didn’t know which was which, you’d be arduous pressed to inform the distinction between the outdated C2 therapeutic massage gun (left) and the brand new C2 Warmth + Ice therapeutic massage gun (proper)

Functionally, the brand new Bob and Brad C2 Professional Warmth + Ice therapeutic massage gun is identical because the older C2 therapeutic massage gun. Which means it’s a therapeutic massage gun. In that respect, it does what I would like/desire a therapeutic massage gun to do:

The Bob and Brad C2 therapeutic massage gun is greater than highly effective sufficient for my functions.

With the ability to add warmth or chilly provides a complete new dimension to therapeutic massage:

  • Chilly therapy reduces irritation by reducing blood stream. Many sports activities accidents profit from chilly remedy.
  • Warmth therapy promotes blood stream and helps muscle mass calm down. Warmth remedy is helpful for power ache and stiffness.
  • Alternating warmth and chilly might assist scale back exercise-induced muscle ache.

I beforehand mentioned: “Who doesn’t love a therapeutic massage for restoration after an extended, arduous trip? Sadly, common sports activities therapeutic massage remedy isn’t a part of everybody’s funds (together with mine). From a $$$ standpoint, therapeutic massage weapons are a sport changer.”

Properly, the addition of warmth or chilly with the Bob and Brad C2 Professional Warmth + Chilly therapeutic massage gun is one other sport changer. It might solely be #marginalgains, however I can really feel the distinction. With the warmth, therapeutic massage is just a bit bit extra soothing and stress-free.
